I have had the bike for 3 years, this month. It has 25,000 on it now.
I’ll grab some today.
Made it to New York. Celebratory Genesee brew.
Thats awesome...geez...i need to ride more!!
There's no moss growing under your tires .
How you think it held up in Florida? Better than a Drz in that sand?
A DRZ might have been a little better, the sand really hit the power of the WR pretty hard. It spent a large majority of the time in the sand at full throttle.
The DRZs I've ridden handle sand similarly to your XR650l. A bit top heavy with soft suspension makes them wallow a bit but the added power makes getting the bike up to speed in sand a bit easier than on the wrr.
How to break the WRR frame:
I like your POV on your camera. What camera are you using, what's the settings (wide, super wide), and where's your mounting location?
Ouch, that's what I was picturing... How deep is the hole? could you get away with running a bottoming tap in there and then use a longer bolt?
the kickstand part of the casting is replaceable according to the unit for sale on -> flea bay <- . Maybe a bike scrap yard in your area has one minus the parts you already have?
best of luck
Take another look at Yinz's picture. The part in the FleaBay link is the part that ripped off. The cast part in the picture is the frame casting.
ahhh . Flickit has it right then ...deeper thread with longer bolt. I wonder if the hole in question could be drilled through with a tap drill ? ..then weld the flat back on the damaged area. This would allow the tap drill to be run into the newly welded area from the reverse side...
Yinzer Moto, on your engine steel subframe just norh of the peg do you have a stress fracture at the edge of the weld where the paint has gone on holiday?
She did well in Co earlier this month.....
Went riding in superb weather in NW Arkansas!

I am running a GoPro session under my helmet visor, so that it can not get caught on branches. I’d have to look at it for the exact settingings.
I could put a longer bolt in there but I doubt it would last very long without support. One light hit would have it ripped back.
